Rivalry Week is upon us, and the scheduling overlords have chosen Charlotte FC as Atlanta United’s fiercest rival this go round. Whatever your thoughts on that matter may be, Atlanta United needs a positive result at home against a lower ranked Charlotte side if they want to make a step in the right direction towards returning to their earlier season form.
A clean injury list with the entire squad in training bodes well, as does the home field advantage, but it’ll still take some above average effort from a side with one win in their last five. Can the Five Stripes pull it off?
